In keeping with past fancy dinners here, here and here, this year I booked with a small group to go to Momofuku in Sydney’s casino ‘The Star’. The creator is the guy behind now 21 resturants, mostly in the US, and this was the first outside the US. It was a great night, and the …

Diner en Blanc 2014

Somehow, this post never got posted, but the pictures are no less lovely, so why not now? Last year (ie 2013), we went to Diner en Blanc held at the surprise location of Bondi Beach.  I posted about it here.  This year (cough 2014!), we went again, and here’s a photo summary.  This year it …

Weight loss update

Let’s start by saying – I’m envious of Dar’s fitness post today. Driving home, I thought ‘if she can do it (and she’s in a place with all that snow, and she is older than me) then what’s my excuse?’.  So I set up my laptop, and still channeling Dar – I put on her …

Weekend feed

So to finish the week of reporting… I made a smoothie with a banana, the (yucky) unsweetened smooth peanut butter, and… chocolate ice cream. Oh and milk.  Usually the banana is frozen and we don’t have ice cream :s And then I went to a friend’s housewarming. I ate many cups of boozy berries with …

Well if one fasts, one must feast! Friday was a lovely work day – I felt like I (once again) tamed my desk and further thinned the large cabinet of inherited paperwork.  I felt very virtuous when i got home, and then headed out with teh BF to meet my parents for comedy (which was …

Thursday fast

Last night’s meals ended with above, in expectation of fast day Thursday. I held off til noon to eat. Today’s light lunch was a small 100g can of tuna and 250g punnet of strawberries. Nice, but the strawberries weren’t as ripe and yummy as the last batch. I then had a hot choc (47 cals) …
